We’ve been going to the Garden DeLights show for many years at the Bellevue Botanical Garden. During construction a few years ago the display was limited and sub-par. But this year is easily their best ever! Nicely re-arranged route, lots of new light displays, and...More

My son and I go to Bellevue Botanic Garden at least once a week to walk around the grounds and enjoy a latte at the terrific little cafe inside the gardens. There is something to see year round. Highly recommend!

We love walking through this garden which also has a forest trail complete with gnomes! The plants are pretty, so much better than our desert landscape, so lush and green. The fall colors were beautiful! Worth the detour!

I cannot believe in the middle of the city we have this treasure garden. It is big enough to do a long walk. It is quiet with a very interesting house as a coffee shop. It also has education center and winderful people.
